Following weeks of closure mysteriously attributed to smoke extractors and the flu, Duncan Welgemoed’s celebrated east-end restaurant will reopen on July 19 with a new menu and design inspired by northern Africa.
As reported by Gourmet Traveller, Welgemoed collaborator James Brown will transform the vivid, shebeen-like interior into "something more uncluttered", while a "demijohn forest" will showcase the wine of Basket Range.
As for the food, hand-pulled lamb shwarmas and injera (Ethiopian flatbread) will join the menu alongside a new focus on vegetable-based dishes. Rest assured Welgemoed’s signature smoked meats, peri peri chicken and secret-recipe hot sauce will remain alongside the new additions.
